Dancing Doodles: PAssion Arts Fest at Bishan Park

70

Dancing Doodles is live motion capture dance installation I made in collaboration with 150 kindergartners! It was exhibited at the PAssion Arts Fest at Bishan Ang Moh Kio Park for 2 days at Bishan Park on the 1st and 2nd of July 2017.

Characters drawn by kindergartners 5 & 6 years old are animated live via motion capture data from an Xbox One Kinect. I made this with Unity, my favorite game engine!

Dancing Doodles was also known as “My Avatar” at the event.
